Chinese Lantern Like UFO's spotted in Central California Beach Town

On June 9th at about 9:30 at night I was laying on my bed listening to the radio. I walked over to my door to close it as it was slightly open letting a draft into the house. But, when I got to the doorway I decided to step out onto my balcony real quick and when I looked over the town and toward the pier, I noticed about 3 to 5 glowing orange orbs floating in the sky. I immediately sensed something peculiar about the objects and quickly grabbed my cell phone to record the event for confirmation that I was actually seeing floating things in the sky.

The objects floated very slowly, two of them moved down toward the pier and downtown area and one slowly rose into the sky. They were small orange orbs, and moving very smooth and effortlessly. No Sound. As I watched the objects, I tried to talk about what was happening in the camera as the footage was very low light and actually quite terrible. However, it does show the glowing orange orbs flickering in and out.

As I watched the one floating higher into the sky, the two lower orbs seemed to just disappear. Then, moments later, the one in the upper sky disappeared just as it was about to float over my head at about 300 feet above me. I almost felt like it was looking at me or knew I was there somehow...like the feeling you get when someone is staring at you from behind and when you turn around, there is someone looking right at you. It had that same feeling of connection.

After the incident I saw two neighbors and showed them the cell phone footage I captured. They said it looked like Chinese lanterns that float with a flame and heat and are made of paper...which made sense as I'd seen these items before but didn't think about them at the time I recognized the objects...so I wrote off the whole experience.

A couple weeks later (today), I was listening to a rerun of last nights Coast to Coast am program and the publisher of this website (ufocenter.com) said people around the country were spotting Chinese Candle like UFOs!!! I re-examined my footage on my cell phone and it looks like what he was explaining!! So here I am, writing to you about a similar experience that happened in one of California's smallest beach towns, approx 2,000 people....

I still don't know what I was looking at but I have the little video on my cell phone if anyone would like to see it.
